6:16 pm
>> we get a similar effect from both with an onshore flow and that pushes that water on to our shores. it's how it works. it's rainy and cold. it's 49 degrees. winds gusting at 17 miles per hour. we have wind chills out there right now for you in the lower 40s. let's get into what's happening. the gusts out there now they will be lasting in some way, shape or form for three if not four days. it will be a drawn-out situation. the winds come off the water. it's an onshore flow. it's not consistent the entire time in terms of a sustained wind at 30 miles per hour for four days straight. that's not what i'm talking about. i am talking about on and off for days. granted not our strongest but it piles up after time.
6:17 pm
let's start talking about the winds. i'm talking, say, 35 or stronger in terms of your gusts for your day tomorrow. this is saturday, this is midnight. as you go through the day 35 or stronger. and it's a tough wind coming off the water when it's that persistent for that long. sunday maybe it drops down to 25 miles per hour or stronger. the problem is the component that it's coming into -- dealing with it as it comes into the area. it may be southeast or northeast. it's all going to depend where the system is that's affecting us at that time. coastal flood advisories are effect because of that water being pushed onshore. the water now is falling from the sky. we have rain for everybody. a little batch of some moderate rain into monmouth and ocean county because of that low pressure system around the tennessee valley. then we watch joaquin. joaquin is forecast to stay offshore. no one on the eastern sea breeeze not our area in that
6:18 pm
cone of concern. now is a possiblele is a wobble possible? with it offshore, you still have a problem because again it's generating that same wind off the water. it could be offshore so we don't have the real heavy winds but a persistent wind at 25 miles per hour for high tide cycles for four days puts water onshore. that's why we are concerned about the flooding possibilities. >> thank you. the jets on the road with passports. otis livingston here with what's next in sports. otis. >> dana, they may be playing in london but they say it's business as usual sunday against the dolphins and rain did in the mets and yankees today. last night a different kind of wet stuff on the bronx bombers minds and in their eyes.
